Chaos is the theme for 2022 and it’s about to get even crazier as Uranus closes in on the north node over the coming weeks. They’ve been within orb since late April and Mars joins the party in July so we can expect a lot more volatility and churn. The disruption has been ongoing for a while but it builds in intensity into July and early August and then bubbles under for the rest of the year.
The conjunction between Uranus and the north node will become exact at 18° Taurus on 31 July and the Mars conjunction becomes exact on 1 August. These events may happen on the same day in your time zone. Mars will be conjunct Uranus and the north node by degree from 22 July to 15 August, while Uranus stays within a few degrees of the north node for the rest of the…
If you failed to set New Year’s resolutions this year, now is the perfect time to redeem yourself. We are getting a little jump start from the planets. For the first time since March of 2021, all of the planets are in direct motion. Mercury stationed today (Feb 4) and four pairs of planets were partnered up in conjunctions. Uranus and Jupiter are the only two “loner” planets right now, not paired up with another planet in a conjunction. (On 2-2-22, there were 4 pairs of planets in 2’s!)
While we have the next three months of forward momentum, commit to making progress on your most important dreams, goals, and intentions. Define them with more detail and timelines. Or, recommit yourself to existing goals. Whether you fell off the wagon dieting and exercising, or if you failed to organize that messy closet, it is not too late. Big, or small, you can always take some action towards a goal. Actions will accumulate over time and become the building blocks that make your dreams come true.
Here’s how the four planetary conjunctions may influence us in the current time.
Moon/Neptune – 21 Pisces was exact today on February 3rd. Avoiding negative people right now can help, though the moon moves fast and this may be wearing off some now. This combination of energy can make us “emotional sponges,” picking up the energy of others around us. Though this energy may also be quite humanitarian in nature, you may need to guard yourself and be your own advocate.
Sun/Saturn – 15 Aquarius was an exactly conjunct on February 3rd and will be separating. With this transit it may be a good time for organizing and planning or bringing FORM to projects that have been in incubation. It may also be a time of low energy, so watch your physical health.
Mercury/Pluto – Next is Mercury/Pluto within 2 degrees and approaching, and becoming exact of February 11, in the late degrees of Capricorn. This combination rules all kinds of propaganda and indoctrination. Be ware of your sources of information and how it impacts institutions. Make sure you have all of the facts.
Mars/Venus – Last is the Mars/Venus conjunction voyaging through Capricorn. They will be exact on February 12th. When Mars is conjunct Venus it is a good time for creative work that requires you to be physically active, and generally produces an interest in the opposite sex. Notice where and how the masculine and feminine come together to create and learn and where the lack of healthy outlets for this energy can cause discord.
Uranus in Taurus – Rethinking our resource management and overhauling what we can do to conserve will continue for some time. We are only at 10 degrees of Taurus and will still only be about halfway through Taurus by the end of 2022 thanks to retrograde periods.
Jupiter in Pisces – Jupiter is currently at 7 Pisces. It will ride the fishes all the way until May 11, and enter Aries. It dips back into Pisces in the late months of 2022 and then goes direct November 23, returning to Aries very close to the Winter Solstice, Dec. 21-22.
All of the planets will remain in forward motion until late April, when Pluto is the first (planet) that goes retrograde, followed by Mercury in May, Saturn and Neptune in June, Chiron and Jupiter in late summer. By September of this year only Venus and Mars will remain in direct motion while everything else moves retrograde.
